Justice Department Issues Technical Assistance on Testing Accommodations

On September 8, 2015, the Justice Department issued technical assistance on testing accommodations for individuals with disabilities who take standardized exams and other high-stakes tests. This guidance addresses the obligation of testing entities, both private and public, to ensure that the test scores of individuals with disabilities accurately reflect the individual’s aptitude, achievement, or the skill that the exam purports to measure, rather than his or her disability.
